EarWell is a non invasive technique that helps to reshape the ears of infants. It takes advantage of the fact that children's ears, when they are first born, remain easily shaped. The EarWell device can help to shape ears that are misshapen. This includes ears that are too prominent (stick out too much), ears that lack folds and flop over, ears that have too many folds, etc. It is most effective when performed during the first week of life. It is important to realize that if a new born's ear has not returned to a normal shape within the first few days, it would not be expected to achieve a normal shape. By using the EarWell, your child can avoid surgery and possible social ridicule. The success rate is also higher than traditional surgeries performed later in life. And best of all, this procedure is not considered cosmetic and is covered by most insurance plans.
Dr. Guy can discuss these options at your consultation. Since time is of the essence with this non invasive procedure for your child, it is important to call your insurance and get your child added on to your plan as soon as possible.
